Tim,

 

I am a bit surprised by this reaction.  It has never occurred to me that I was being made aware of online collections, but rather, freight cars.  Remember, those things that are in our group's title.  I for one am not interested in searching endlessly for images and I very much appreciate that someone else finds gems and posts them for me (all of us) to consider.  As for even pointing out what might draw our attention, that is not necessary.  There have been many serendipitous encounters for details, such as other freight cars in the background, that no one could guess my interest in having.  I have many photos now filed away that may be of future interest thanks to these being routinely posted.  I don't have time to search for or through archives so I find these postings often quite interesting and helpful.  Some generate sound and useful discussion, thank you!  I would miss them if they did not happen.  If they are of no interest, they are easily passed over.

 

I say, "Keep posting Freight Car images."

I have a model RR friend who lives in the home town of the IT. So this is my pick for "I". Enjoy it as much as I do.

Hammond Little River Redwood railway

This RR was home based on the spit separating North Humbold Bay, CA from the Pacific Ocean. The roundhouse and some other structures survive to this day and a young museum group is being quite active. I chose this RR almost out of luck, because there are few 'H' RRs. This shay has a log flat, which I believe to be a freight car.

Was Photo: URTX 5365 - Oscar Mayer Reefer / Now: Roof hatches

np328
 

   Bob gave us the following link in msg 176179 
https://www.wisconsinhistory.org/Records/Image/IM13658  

     And I may have missed this design in the books I quickly perused however - 
The roof hatches appear to be diamond tread overlay material, and the hefty beams to hold the open hatches could underscore that they are plate steel, however I cannot recall seeing these roof hatches prior, and the accompanying latches.  Wow can you imagine being in a hurry to open those, or worse yet pinch a finger when closing them. 
   Modeled by a foil overlay? 
    Can anyone provide a bit of enlightenment as to the design?                                                                                                    Thanks      Jim Dick - St. Paul, MN

Boy, I am sure glad that my new niche is paying off so well. Again, no need to thank me for this labor of love. A Erie flat car.

Home page for their website indicates that they are a train show organizer. Don’t see anyway to purchase products except for train show tickets. Too bad.

Most of them contain such a date in the link, or the subject line, and is, agreed, one of the gates I use to decide whether I want to look at it or not.

 

Keep posting.

I'm inclined to agree with Richard, but would suggest that the posters of these many photos try and include a date in the subject line, even if approximate.  In conjunction with a road name, this can help a lot with deciding whether or not I need to take a peek, or can skip it and move on.

There is a key on every computer keyboard that says “Delete.”

 

If you don’t like the listings of freight car images from the many troves of images that have been brought to us, I suggest you make use of that key.

Tim,

 

I am a bit surprised by this reaction.  It has never occurred to me that I was being made aware of online collections, but rather, freight cars.  Remember, those things that are in our group's title.  I for one am not interested in searching endlessly for images and I very much appreciate that someone else finds gems and posts them for me (all of us) to consider.  As for even pointing out what might draw our attention, that is not necessary.  There have been many serendipitous encounters for details, such as other freight cars in the background, that no one could guess my interest in having.  I have many photos now filed away that may be of future interest thanks to these being routinely posted.  I don't have time to search for or through archives so I find these postings often quite interesting and helpful.  Some generate sound and useful discussion, thank you!  I would miss them if they did not happen.  If they are of no interest, they are easily passed over.

I suggest to those who don't want to look at these photos don't look at them. I have skipped over some when I have been busy, but I have enjoyed many of them. I say keep them coming.

Encouraging, with May 2020 blog entries, but nothing else on the site is live. For example, there is a section on wheel sets saying to buy them on line, but there are no links to allow you to do that. My guess is that, if it is legit, it is still in the process of being built. 

     I noticed the same. I was ready to buy some stuff!!
